1. Will the show end in the Sideways World or the Island Universe?
Despite barely changing my main theory over the course of the season, I am starting to believe that the ending will be very different from what I had been imagining. I think perhaps the War of the Island will end in the Sideways World.
I had previously thought the sideways Losties would wake up, then they would have to run with the ball right up until they fixed whatever it is they needed to fix (what that may be, I still have no idea), then
Now I am not so sure. Now I think that perhaps the end game will play out in the Sideways World, with the Losties winning out over not just Smocke, but also Jacob and the Island, too. Then perhaps the ones who survive will live out their lives in some sort of merged version of the two universes
Jacob said he wanted the world to be a place where humans did not need his help, and maybe that is what the Sideways World will be once all is said and done.
More detail on this in another post, but please use the comment button below to let me know where you think the show will end, and why you think that.
And now on to...
2. I have a vision of John Locke in recovery at the hospital. He is wiggling his toes for Dr. Jack, when
For Locke, he needs a recreation of that "miracle moment" when he looked down his prone body after the 815 crash and saw his toes wiggling for the first time in four years. Much like the image of Charlie Pace underwater and pressing his hand to a window first sparked Desmond's memories, seeing his toes wiggling again might just be what sparks John Locke to wake up. I would not be surprised to see that exact shot from the pilot recreated, with the camera at ground level and looking up along John's body from behind his feet.
For Jack, it could then be a recreation of his "miracle moment," which was the one between he and Sara, his ex-wife, when he thought she was paralyzed forever after he could not "fix" her during surgery. Jack came back from his run in the stadium (where he just happened to meet Desmond for the first time, and which we may also see recreated) to see Sara wiggling her toes.
John Locke's toes may not be as cute as Sara's, but recreating that "miracle moment" might just bring it all back for Jack, too.
It's not all lost-loves and near-death-experiences that will bring back your memories. Sometimes it is just seeing something you have seen before... something from another life, brutha.
